Reading, writing, reading, writing, connecting, conversing, connecting, conversing!!!! OH, what a JOY 4th grade language arts will be for you!! We cannot wait to share some incredible novels, stories, articles, and poems with you this year and facilitate your growth as an author. That’s right – I said YOU will be an author!!! We want you to connect meaningfully to what you read and talk about it! Then we want you to write about what you read and learn from the authors you read about how to use interesting, descriptive language to record your own thoughts and stories in organized narratives. You will have an opportunity to learn how our English language has borrowed words from other languages and you will become SO word-wise that prefixes and suffixes will quake when they see you coming!! Grab a book, e-book, magazine, poem, play, website, pen, pencil, keyboard – we’ll even take a crayon or a marker if you want to write with it!! – come read, write, connect and converse with us!!!
